Better than a movie for sure, and seems to be made by the company and not some random third party. I wonder if it'll just be an animated IDW series though, same setting and all.

From what I can guess by the title, it seems to be about their lives outside of saving Skylands.

And they already replaced the voice actors of Spyro, Stealth Elf, Eruptor, and Glumshanks.

Norm Macdonald as Glumshanks. I'm sorry, what? That's hilarious. I hope for the sake of childhood innocence that these kids don't try to look up some of his other work. That way it'll just be, "Look mommy! Colonel Sanders is Glumshanks now! <.<;

At least it looks like Richard Horvitz will still be Kaos.

Actually,Skylanders Academy is their current hub since TT and in the comics,so it could be both their lives or other adventures a la the books.

Does it even matter at this point? I would Spyro to have his own game again but he's still a Skylander. It's been nearly 5 years, people. Listen to that famous song in Frozen and take Elsa's advice.

They would, I guarantee it. The design could be just slightly off, the eyes could have a new color so the purple wouldn't mess up some expressions, the personality could be too nice or too mean, the new characters could be too intrusive, the villains not hammy enough. Oh yeah, and the flame wars if a single Enter the Dragonfly world shows up
And I'm making this up for a show that's not even happening.

IDK, Enter the Dragonfly has actually gained a bit of a following over the years. I don't think there'd be that many flame wars. Hell, dS hasn't had a good flame war in general section since before Skylanders was announced.

It's supposed to target fans of Skylanders from the get go. Even if Acti did a classic series cartoon,they'd appeal to a younger crowd,because "obviously" those old fans don't watch kids' shows.

Oldschool Spyro fandom turned their backs on Skylanders, Acti just returned the favor.

Periphery Demographics make themselves,though, every time someone tries to pander to them we get a really immature show. And it's Blizzard Entertainment's first cartoon too,they'll play super safe because it might be their only shot if it bombs.

It surprises me that Spyro is being voiced by Justin Long of all people. Don't get me wrong, Justin's cool! I hold nothing against him. But why replace Josh when he does voice-acting as a living? (Ah, well. Probably couldn't fit it into his schedule?)

The recent unaltered voicework Justin has done was Alpha and Omega and Walking with Dinosaurs. And he sounded like an older Skylanders Spyro.

Well, it might be spoilers/YMMV on the show in question, but Josh Haber - the chosen writer for Skylanders Academy - wrote his first episode for MLP Season 5. It's.... It's crap, and somehow someone thought it was a great idea to have him in a season finale.

I will try not to spoil The Cutie Re-Mark,but without context of the show,you really can't tell how bad it is anyway.

Fanservice over characters, main problem. You know those comics and games that throw plot out of the window to make sure certain universes collide to fight or weird AUs to happen? Yes,those are usually non-canon. This isn't. The characters have their intelligence halved to make sure they just sit and watch or do weird assumptions or just refuse to do the obvious right option because the crazy things need to keep happening. The result is a huge mess full of plot holes and a villain that you can care less about because OH NO THEY HAVE A FREUDIAN EXCUSE NOW YOU NEED TO CARE VERY MUCH summed up in about 2 minutes.
He also does the Equestria Girls movies,which I mentioned in the SC thread I don't like very much, but if that's how he does normal show episodes... I'm pretty scared.

(and all of this is pretty weird since we had Castle Mane-ia a whole season ago and he wrote a perfectly good episode)

I think we need not worry. The show runner is from Futurama, one of the highest praised cartoons of all time.

I'm personally not worried currently. We should wait and see for more info.

I'm not worried by now. Nothing was shown until now. But I'm thinking how the graphical quality will be.

I have a feeling that we will have something (like a little scene) in The Game Awards. I don't expect much, but who knows...
